Nutrition incorporates so many distinct palates which fulfil the criteria of carbs, protein, fibre, and vitamins in adequate amounts. As a matter of fact, fashion designer Masaba Gupta swears by a solid bowl of greens that she always sticks to when she is “going off-track”.
In a post on Instagram, Masaba shared the “prep” for the salad that can be whipped up quickly.
“Nutrition is a very important pillar for me. I usually follow an 80/20 rule where I eat well 80 per cent of the time and allow myself 20 per cent of all the food I love but isn’t really good for me. But when I go off track and the junk takes up 50 per cent of space, I need to get back on track!” shared the Masaba Masaba actor.
Calling it a “quick one-bowl meal” that has a bit of everything her body needs – protein, carbs, fats and vitamins — Masaba mentioned, “It’s my go-to meal to bounce back and give my body everything it has been deprived of!”
According to her, the trick with one-bowl meals is that you serve yourself in the kitchen or prep in a way that you don’t really need second helpings!
*Salmon, baked (or pan-fried)
*Paprika dusted potatoes
*Guacamole with garlic, salt and pepper
*Add all ingredients one-by-one and mix together.
“It’s very clean and full of flavour and very exciting,” shared Masaba.

*Replace salmon with any other protein source you prefer…chicken, paneer, tofu, or soya.
*Add the vegetables you like but make sure you’re adding enough greens and try to make your salad dressings at home (and don’t involve any sugars)
*Basically, try to make it a bowl full of things you like that are also good for your mind, body, and skin.
Is the green bowl good for you too?
It is a highly nutritious salad provided that a fibre-rich meal from legumes and grains is taken during the day, said food therapist Dr Ria Banerjee Ankola.
“Vegetables and fruits have more water content than fibre. But if the body needs an adequate amount of fibre, which is food for good bacteria in the stomach, the meal needs to have grains or lentils like chole, rajma, chana, and sprouts. Just taking a grain-less salad only during the day is problematic as it is risky for gut health. Once gut health is affected, it leads to many other issues,” Dr Ria said.
